Yes – Jerk Chicken Sliders. I know, I know, it’s another slider. Don’t judge a girl for having a million and one ways to use slider buns. Just listen. Or, read.
These. I just can’t even begin.
This combination so perfectly marries together that will make you roll your eyes in the back of your head and say OMG. Even if you’re not a slaw fan, I promise you, these will change your mind. I cannot tell you how.many.people I have converted from picky asses, hates everything, to “what was that I just ate? Um, I could have SWORN I don’t like slaw (or whatever it is that I got them to try).
I won’t misrepresent here; I have definitely told a fib or two. But I HAD to. Finicky, picky ass people are usually very hard to persuade. So, I tell them a little white lie, they aren’t scared so they go for it.
Then I tell them the truth about what they just tried, and they first give me a dirty look, but then just give in and say they want me to get them to try something else.
Ok, maybe I can. They’re beyond fantastic – thebomb.com. Oh, wait, is thebomb.com so yesterday? Or was it so 2012, or maybe so 2011? Hell, I have no idea.
I can’ t keep up. I’m now 38; to my kids I’m sure I seem ancient.
I’ve made these many times, but never posted them. I have a big, fat list of things to re-make, re-shoot, re-do, re-everything, etc. The list keeps growing because I keep cooking.
I have tried to make homemade jerk sauce, but so far I haven’t had much success; I get almost there but there’s some tweaking to do. I’ll keep trying, but for now these turn out beautifully with bottled Jerk sauce and slow cooked chicken.
Oh, and of course, arugula. These are so simple to make.
And BTW, the Gorgonzola takes them way over the top. Do not leave that stuff out. Trust me?
Here’s your printable —
- 1 lb boneless, skinless chicken breasts
- 1 bottle Jamaican Jerk marinade
- 1 bag angel hair cabbage (coleslaw)
- 1/2 cup mayo (more or less depending on your preference)
- 8 oz Gorgonzola cheese, crumbled
- Salt and Pepper to taste
- 12 slider buns
- Put the chicken and Jerk marinade in a slow cooker on low and cook for 8-10 hours.
- Remove the chicken and shred it using two forks.
- Combine the cabbage, mayo and Gorgonzola. Salt and pepper to taste.
- Serve the chicken on slider buns topped with slaw and Arugula.

Not only are these the bomb.com, they are dope and make me want to shizzle my nizzle. The sliders are badass and the gorgonzola slaw is bitchin’.
